Re: Looks like he wears the skirt in that house
I taught my kids when they were young - we lived in Finland and I didn't even own any guns there - owning firearms is a bit complicated in Finland. My ex-wife wouldn't even allow a rifle. However, I had friends so I was able to teach my kids. My youngest son is now in the Finnish Navy and is a gunners mate on one of their missile boats.
Now I live in Idaho. My wife (not my ex-wife) has no problem with me having guns and I'm going to get her a pistol of her own soon.
My eldest daughter who was living in Portland Or. and now lives 12 miles away from us here in Idaho and has her own Ruger 10/22. I'll be giving her a pistol in the near future as a gift. Everyone in this valley has guns and I mean everyone. Small wonder we have about zero crime. This is an open carry state - truly open carry. One of my pistols rides on the dashboard of our pickup. There is a reason that it's there and it has nothing to do with people. That pistol is in the truck mostly in case we hit a deer and it isn't dead from the accident - I can shoot it so that it won't suffer.
We have sheep and goats and wolves do come down into our valley. One of our nearby neighbors lost 3 sheep and one of her Maremmano guard dogs to wolves last year. I am always armed outside. To go out and not be armed would simply be stupid. I go outside - I take my 1911.
People in cities simply do not understand what it is like to live up in the mountains far away from cities. The local sheriff could never get to someones property in time to save them from a wolf attack. Basically, if you aren't armed here you can very well become very dead while becoming food.
